I have to confess that I had a card made that I really liked; however it has some glue seepage that I tried to fix with no success. I made three additional cards with this card being my last and fave of the bunch. It uses one of Paula's digis which can be found here. The image might be Paper Smooches, not sure as it was stamped by a friend. I have been making cards from my scrap piles. Yes, I said piles so it is time to reduce them.

My card follows the theme at Sweet Stampin' Challenge which is to use their sketch. Simply perfect for a Mother's Day card. Image is part of an old Stampin Up set that my sister picked up for me. Papers were dug out of my scrap box. I just may decide to save this one for my mother if I do not make a couple more. I can definitely see myself using this sketch often. Thanks for the inspiration!
I do not do well in the morning without a cup of coffee to start my day. So I was super inspired by the theme for the most recent challenge at Addicted to CAS. I had purchased the Acrylic paper at Walmart (in the art aisle) for another project and decided to use it for this card. The base was created with watercolor pencils, ink and spray. Image is by Stamp With Gail. Sentiments are by Fiskars.

It's Sunday and there is another super fun sketch to be inspired by at OWH. This sketch was created by Lori which when I spied it during Card Bowl I knew immediately that I wanted to CASE it. The banners were part of a diecut set (forgot the maker, oops) that I saved for the CASE card. Papers are by Carta Bella and sentiment is computer generated.

It has been a long time since I created a card for the Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog. I have this great Imaginations stamp that is perfect for this theme. I was going to color, but my Memento is hiding, so I decided to fussy cut everything instead. This card is made from all scraps that I found on my craft table, except for the Washi Tape. So happy to see my scrap pile disappearing.

I liked a card I made earlier today that I made a second and tweaked it for the latest Cards in Envy challenge. I used papers from Glimpses by Signify Pink (black & gray). I cannot decide if I like that big u and is it in the best place. This one may go to my DH even though we do not celebrate the 14th as it is the death anniversary of his father.

Wowzers, three posts in one day. I was kinda at a loss for inspiration for the latest challenge of making a Love card for Addicted to CAS until I ran across the xo scrap paper from MME on my table. Just perfect for a tag. Sentiment is by Paper Smooches. I also told myself that I was not going to use a heart...but it just worked way to well for the sentiment shape that I decided to go for it.
For this challenge I started with the color stamp by Imaginice. I wanted to do a puny saying, but after choosing this loud background paper I decided to go another way and use a Paper Smooches sentiment. It really helps to pop the blues. I could not resist using this paper because it contains all the colors of the Olympic Flag. If you want to join in please go here.
